Description

London, England.
At the dawn of the twentieth century, the most significant event in human history has come to pass. Contact from an alien planet has been achieved. Rocket capsules fired from the surface of Mars have crashed into the southern
English countryside.
But what should be a moment of scientific curiosity and wonderful first contact between two alien worlds turns instead into disaster. The annihilative weapons of the Martians leave no doubt whatsoever about the nature of the alien contact -an outright invasion of Earth.
In the midst of the chaos and devastation, one man makes a desperate attempt to save himself and make his way back to his family. Follow his account of the incredible events he encounters in Campfire's vivid adaptation of H G Wells's
masterpiece, The War of the Worlds.




About the Author
Often called "the father of science fiction," British author Herbert George (H. G.) Wells' literary works are notable for being some of the first titles of the science fiction genre, and include such famed titles as The Time Machine, The War of the Worlds, The Island of Doctor Moreau, and The Invisible Man. Despite being fixedly associated with science fiction, Wells wrote extensively in other genres and on many subjects, including history, society and politics, and was heavily influenced by Darwinism. His first book, Anticipations of the Reaction of Mechanical and Scientific Progress Upon Human Life and Thought, offered predictions about what technology and society would look like in the year 2000, many of which have proven accurate. Wells went on to pen over fifty novels, numerous non-fiction books, and dozens of short stories. His legacy has had an overwhelming influence on science fiction, popular culture, and even on technological and scientific innovation. Wells died in 1946 at the age of 79.
